    You can certainly pick up the file using File Sender Adapter.

    The guide <b>How to Push data from XI to BW</b> explains how to post data to BW using proxies.

    If your source and target structures are same then you dont need mapping, otherwise you need to create a map.

      Padma as I mentioned you need to perform Content Conversion if the data is in plain data or comma separated or fixedwidth or tab delimited.

      Look at the following blogs

      /people/michal.krawczyk2/blog/2004/12/15/how-to-send-a-flat-file-with-fixed-lengths-to-xi-30-using-a-central-file-adapter

      /people/sap.user72/blog/2005/01/06/how-to-process-csv-data-with-xi-file-adapter

      Content conversion and mapping or two different things. Mapping is needed when you need to change the data format what the receiver wants and the sender format are different.

      XI understands XML data only not the flat file format.
